The pressure for Referendum 2 is growing it looks to be the best outcome, today's news is providing some hope of a solution to this mess.

Unfortunately only the ruling party can call a referendum and as things stand they won't.
Unless the criminal investigation of the referendum funding throws up something that is too big to ignore they have no incentive so to do.

@Teasswill:
"I don't think the age groups are that significant either"

Then you think wrong.

The significant age-correlated skew in the voting is not a matter of opinion. This isn't me saying "this is what I think is going to happen" or even "this is what I think happened", it's me saying "this is what multiple independent sources of publicly available statistics say definitely happened", and moving on from there.

It's an interesting observation, though - the attitude that feelings trump facts is part of the reason we're in this mess. When Michael Gove goes to his grave, the phrase he will be remembered for is "had enough of experts". What a legacy.

Even then, all that would happen is some scapegoat would be found, prosecuted and slapped on the wrist.

You know what would stop Brexit? Riots. Riots like the ones that got the poll tax reverse. It's literally the only thing I can think of now. The problem is that the sort of people who riot are the ones who voted Leave.
